The Oklahoma City Thunder (37-23) is fresh off their worst loss of not just the season but in franchise history as they fell 133-86 to the Milwaukee Bucks (52-9) last Friday night. After three days of rest, perhaps OKC can rebound with a win.

Tonight, the Thunder hosts the Los Angeles Clippers (41-19), who are riding a 4-game win streak, which includes victories over the Denver Nuggets (41-19) and the Philadelphia 76ers (37-24). Tonight’s matchup is going to be a tough one for OKC, but it would be great timing to knock off one of the league’s best, all while rebounding from a historic loss.
